EDEN GAMES has been specialised in the design and production of racing games for 25 years. As the creator of the V-Rally and Test Drive Unlimited franchises, the team is now working on its new licence, Gear.Club for mobile and Nintendo Switch, and is also collaborating with Codemasters on the official F1 Mobile Racing game and with Microids for the Gear.Club Unlimited Franchise.
EDEN GAMES, based in Lyon, France, was founded in 1998 to develop motor racing simulation franchises.
There have been two key stages in the studio’s development:
From 1998 to 2013
Eden created global racing franchises (V-Rally and Test Drive Unlimited) but has also addressed action and adventure franchises (Kya: Dark Lineage), while developing partnerships for internationally recognised licences: Need For Speed Porsche (Electronic Arts), Titeuf (Atari) and Alone In The Dark (Atari).
After a new start, the Company has focused on its racing expertise by creating a new franchise (Gear.Club iOS/Android – Gear.Club Unlimited Nintendo Switch), while also building a partnership with Codemasters on the F1 Mobile iOS/Android project.
EDEN is currently working on a number of ambitious, innovative racing projects available on all the new market platforms.
Eden Games has operated both as an independent studio and also as a subsidiary of famous Publishers such as Atari. We are now part of the Torque Esports Corp.
EDEN GAMES is led by two of its founders, David Nadal and Jean-Yves Geffroy. The team is currently made up of experienced developers and highly motivated young people united by their passion not only for motor racing but also for the latest technologies and creatively-designed video games.
EDEN GAMES is always looking for new talents.
